Ghost Rider Marvel Legends Series 3 Action Figure by Toy Biz


"¿¿¿ Cuál es tu problema con mi cabellera rubia flamígera ??? ... Lárgate de mi vista pedazo de escoria, que arruinas mi blower !!!" 

Uhmmmm... personajes con actitud, de preferencia con mala actitud, son los que aguzan mis sentidos. El resto pueden quedarse en Discovery Kids...

Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich y Mike Ploog le dieron vida a un antihéroe (no villano) llamado Ghost Rider, con base en un personaje de cómic del género western, en 1972. 


La primera encarnación de este personaje se dió en Johnny Blaze, motociclista acrobático de un circo, que hace pacto con un demonio llamado Mephisto para dar su alma a cambio de la curación de su padrastro. 

Finalmente su padrastro muere y cuando Mephisto viene a hacer cumplir el pacto, Blaze se rebela, pero es unido al espíritu de un demonio llamado Zarathos, que es quien le da su nueva apariencia y poderes. 

Posteriormente Daniel Ketch toma su lugar, aunque éste último es unido a un espíritu de venganza llamado Ghost Rider (el original) así que sus poderes y características varían un poco, con respecto al primer Ghost Rider. 

Los dos llegan a trabajar juntos combatiendo a otros demonios y castigando las almas de criminales, corruptos y asesinos.

En la serie "World War Hulk", se descubre que este antiheroe es tan poderoso que podría enfrentar y derrotar a the Hulk. 


Entre sus habilidades se cuenta la manipulación un poder llamado "Hellfire" para usarlo como arma, es inmune a cualquier ataque con armas convencionales, puede crear cadenas que también usa como armas y controlarlas a voluntad, además puede viajar a otros planos de realidad. 

El segundo Ghost Rider tiene una cadena mística que usa como arma, un poder llamado "Penance Stare" que "quema" el alma de su víctima exponiéndola a todos y cada uno de sus pecados y en su motocicleta puede viajar sobre cualquier superficie, en sentido vertical u horizontal.

Esta figura que hace parte de la colección de otro colega y está basada en el segundo Ghost Rider (Daniel Ketch), es de 6", con 37 puntos de articulación, un trabajo de pintura bastante decente, al igual que su moldeado y está
complementado por una fabulosa motocicleta, un cómic de 32 páginas y una base para montar la figura en la pared. 

Definitivamente, como en el caso de otras figuras de la serie Marvel Legends de Toy Biz, tiende a ser una pieza escasa e incrementa notablemente su valor con el paso del tiempo...

ENGLISH

"Wads ur problem with my blond hair flaming ??? ... Get out of my sight scum bag, u r ruining my hairstyle !!!" 

Uhmmmm... characters with attitude, preferably with a bad attitude, are the ones who sharpen my senses. The rest can stay on Discovery Kids...

Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich and Mike Ploog breathed life into an antihero (not villain) called Ghost Rider, based on a comic character of the western genre, in 1972. 


The first incarnation of this character was given in Johnny Blaze, a circus stunt rider, who makes a pact with a demon called Mephisto to give his soul in exchange for the cure of his stepfather. 

Finally his stepfather dies and when Mephisto comes to enforce the pact, Blaze rebels himself, but his soul is united with the spirit of a demon called Zarathos, who gives him his new look and powers. 

Later Daniel Ketch takes his place, although the latter is attached to a spirit of vengeance called Ghost Rider (the original) so that his powers and characteristics vary a bit from the first Ghost Rider. 

Both of them even worked together to fight other demons and to punish the souls of criminals, corrupts and murderers.

In the "World War Hulk" series, is found that this
antihero is so powerful that he could face and defeat to the Hulk. 

Among his skills it can be mentioned the handling of a power called "Hellfire" to use it as a weapon, he’s immune to any attack with conventional weapons, he can create chains that also use as weapons and control them at will, he can travel to other planes of reality as well. 

The second Ghost Rider has a mystical chain that uses as a weapon, a power called "Penance Stare" that "burns" the soul of his victim by exposing to each and every one of their sins and his motorcycle can nearly fly across any surface, meaning vertical and horizontal.

This figure that is part of the collection of another colleague of mine, is based on the second Ghost Rider
(Daniel Ketch), is 6" high, with 37 points of articulation, a pretty decent paint job like its molding and is supplemented by a fabulous motorcycle, a 32 pages comic book and a wall mountable display stand. 

Definitely, as in the case of other figures from the Marvel Legends series of Toy Biz, this piece tends to be out of stock/sold out and increases significantly its value over time...

Holy Burnin H3ll! Its ghost rider!

Though i only known him in the movie, this guy is pretty sick in action, plus the flaming chain.

Err, I liked the chopper bike version better, but this one looks like it can smash through everything without worrying about damage, or scratched paint^^;;

LEon said...

Chris how you know it's me? it maybe some of my reader who come to your blog? LOL

I will try to comment more. it's pretty hard to come out something if I have nothing for it you know. :)

Anyway hope to see more paragraphing as sometime it's rather hard for me to read all the wall of text at one paragraph. Ya that's my complain too. :P

Ghost Rider is unique in the sense than his power and outlook are very different from other typical superheroes. I would say he belongs more to the super natural side. The bike and figure gives it a modern and futuristic feel. I think it's great!

chrismandesign said...

absolutely Dennis... Ghost Rider belongs to a recent cast of warriors, a different kind of heroes (antiheroes) arising from the most unexpected places, in this case from Hell... & if u ask me if from Hell can arises something good, i’ll answer u categorically: NOT AT ALL... but this is fiction, u know. In this sense, this characters is similar to Spawn... bout the bike, i forgot to mention that it remainds me as well the bike of Blade, but if u want something more futuristic, there is a Ghost Rider version 2099 in comic... LOL
